TORRENTIAL weather has forced organisers to postpone Belper’s Steam and Vintage Event, following fears over safety.

Steady downpours throughout the week waterlogged Salterwood Meadows in Denby, where the popular attraction is held.

And after a ground inspection on Wednesday night officials called it off - citing concerns that steam engines could lose traction and potentially injure visitors.

Thousands of enthusiasts and exhibitors travel from across the UK to attend the event every year.
